Weddings & Events Venues and Vendors
Best Venues and Vendors for Telluride Events. Teamwork (and outrageous views) really do make the dream work.
When it comes to planning your Telluride wedding, reunion or anniversary, you’ll find that Telluride offers a spectrum of venues and a deep bench of locals ready to bring your dreams to fruition. To help navigate the party scene, we’ve compiled some of our absolute favorites.
The Where is the Wow
High on a mesa, on the valley floor, only a gondola ride away, or at a historic opera house. You can’t throw a bouquet in this town without hitting a reasonable place to throw a party, so be open to the views and the new ideas.
In other words, the town is your (Rocky Mountain) oyster. But we do have our faves:
Collect your guests mid-mountain on the Telluride Ski Resort for massive views of Wilson Mountain Range on the expansive Gorrono Ranch decks. Later, head inside the rustic-posh ski lodge for dancing and dining.
Built in 1913, near peak gold mining glory, this gorgeous downtown historic venue has hosted world famous entertainers — like Sarah Bernhardt, Smokey Robinson, Taj Mahal and Jewel — for over a century. It remains a top choice for live music and unforgettable parties.
Just ten miles from town the Schmid family have maintained their homestead in the heart of Wilson Mesa since 1882. This real-deal Telluride family offers an authentic western experience.
Transformative views, exceptional amenities and a host of options for dining, dancing, toasting and ceremonies, the Peaks is a popular choice for a spectacular event.
